Little Luna

World, meet Luna.  She is the newest member of The Middle(tons) of Nowhere.


Luna is a three month old Australian Cattle Dog mix (the same as Specks) and she came to us from the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society (LTBHS).  Before LTBHS, she was living a pretty rough life that alternated between the streets and death row at an Illinois kill shelter.  I've been wanting to adopt a companion for Specks for quite some time.  We've even gone to meet potential adoptees, but Specks is an extremely passive dog with no tendencies towards aggression, prey drive, or even barking.  Because of this, we've been holding out for the perfect brother or sister for him.


Luna (formerly named Joplin) seemed like a wonderful fit.  She is awfully timid right now, but she is already shyly curling up next to Specks and sneaking kisses to Cody and I.  The three of us are positively smitten with her.  We decided to change her name to Luna in honor of Luna Lovegood (from Harry Potter).  Luna Lovegood has always been one of my favorite book characters and I think our new, baby Luna will live up to all of her silly goodness :)

Your turn…Have you ever adopted a pet?

  2. She's adorable. We have a dog, and briefly hosted a puppy. It was a stray who came to our house literally skin and bones - somebody who came to pick up free baby clothes fell in love with the puppy and thought she would be the perfect little pup sibling to her other dog. :) Love happy endings.

  3. She's cute! I wonder what Joplin was a reference to? (Janis?)

    1. Thanks! I'm guessing it was a Janis reference. They were a litter of five pups and they all had "J' names though. I liked Joplin, but I thought Luna suited her better :)

  7. Our cat is from the litter of one of my mom's previous co-worker's cats. Our next pet addition will be a couple of aquatic frogs for our aquarium :) Congrats on your growing pet family!

  8. She's too cute! And of course, you can't go wrong with a Harry Potter-named dog. ;)
